Guerrero: Impunity in the Ayotzinapa case, two years on

Engaging in a temporary roadblock of the Sol Highway, youth from the Normal School of Ayotzinapa paid tribute to the two students murdered by police in 2011 outside Chilpancingo.  The students, Gabriel Echeverría de Jesús and Jorge Alexis Herrera Pino, were executed extra-judicially by police on 12 December 2011 in this same location.  The National Commission on Human Rights (CNDH) laments that two years after the death of these students during a confrontation with federal, state, and municipal police forces, relatives of the victims of these grave human-rights violations have had no effective access to justice.  The Tlachinollan Mountain Center for Human Rights emphasized in a communique that “given the lack of justice in Guerrero, the family members of Jorge Alexis Herrera Pino and Gabriel Echeverría de Jesús, like many others who face impunity, consider it necessary to take their demands before the international courts.”
